Left Handed Goldtone ES-Banjitar, Left Handed ES Banjitar Guitar Banjo

Left Handed Goldtone ES-Banjitar - Following the success of the Gold Tone Banjitar line, requests were made for an on-stage solid body 6-string banjo played like a guitar. The ES-Banjitar, like a normal banjo, has extremely fast response compared to a regular electric. Hammer-ons, pull-offs, and slides are accomplished with incredible ease. Even unplugged, the ES-Banjitar has an excellent banjo tone due to the hollow sound chamber within the body. This instrument is great for country music, blues, jazz, or any style where a banjo tone is desired without the need for learning the traditional 5-string banjo. Only a few years ago, a 6-string banjo would have been considered a ‘cheater’ banjo for guitarists, but today it is well accepted as its own instruments and you will hear the 6-string banjo in many genres of popular music!

The Left Handed ES-Banjitar features an 8” tone ring and banjo head, dual pickup configuration with a stacked humbucker in the neck position and a hidden humbucking pickup beneath the banjo head in the bridge position, volume and tone controls, Straightline tailpiece, mahogany body, maple neck with bound rosewood fingerboard, and low string action. The ES-Banjitar has a scale length of 25-1/2” and uses standard ball-end guitar strings. Final assembly and complete setup performed at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida.

The ES Pickup System

The Left Handed ES-Banjitar is equipped with two pickups; a humbucker under the banjo head in the bridge position, and a stacked humbucker in the neck position. There is a 3-way selector switch that allows the player to switch between the neck pickup only (position up), both the neck and bridge pickup simultaneously (center position), and the bridge pickup only (position down). The three knobs consist of a volume knob for each pickup (2) and a master tone knob (1). Blending between the two pickups utilizing both volume knobs is possible when the 3-way pickup selector is in the center position and both pickups are activated.
